This Project is developing regionally enhanced satellite orbit and clock models to support real-time, centimetre-level positioning services regardless of location.
There are two work packages: one on the regional GPS/GLONASS orbit and clock enhancement system; and one on the regional QZSS/COMPASS orbit analysis platform.
The outcomes will facilitate a wider adoption of nationwide centimetre positioning in agriculture, mining and utilities, construction, maritime, defence and environmental protection applications.
In the sectors of agriculture, mining and construction alone, the benefits can reach the order of several billion dollars per annum due to increased productivity (Allen Consulting, 2008).
A large user group will be the intelligent transportation systems (ITS) sector where precise GNSS and wireless communication techniques are integrated to support vehicle safety systems. Applications of multi-GNSS based precise positioning for nationwide road safety alone can lead to significant social and economic benefits through lives saved and a reduction in losses due to road accidents.
- Dr Bofeng Li visited QUT for 4 weeks in April-May
- Yanming, Matt, Charles and Yongchao attended CSNC conference held at Wuhan in 15-17 May 2013. Both Yanming and Matt gave invited presentations
- PhD student made a good progress in his PhD work, having identified the research questions and start working on them and complete the draft of the first paper
- The team are generating regionally enhanced products (orbit, clock and UPD) according to Curtin’s specification for their PPP-RTK AR test
